Psychomania is a 1971 British horror film.
"Tom Latham enjoys riding his motorcycle with his girlfriend and loves his mother dearly, but Tom is no ordinary fellow, he is the leader of a violent, occult motorcycle gang appropriately titled "The Living Dead". His mother and her sinister butler get their kicks out of holding seances in their home. Through her and following in his father's footsteps, Tom makes a pact with the devil to return from the dead. One by one, he and his fellow bikers commit suicide with the goal of returning as one of the "undead". Not all succeed. The ones who do gather together at a secret place called "The Seven Witches", which refers to a circle of standing stones, after which they continue to terrorize the locals.
This was one of the last films of George Sanders, who committed suicide soon after making this film, in April 1972."
I love the design of the met visor. I wonder how much of visibility it provides, though...
It sure has the cult following; the t-shirt design here is dedicated to the best/worst motorcycle horror movie. You can get it from here, Mini Cassette Tees

Werewolves on wheels is a 1971 American movie. From its date, obviously trying to take advantage of popularity of "Easy Rider" and ever popular horror movie character Werewolf. According to Wikipedia, "in many scenes, footage was used of real bikers with no experience or training in acting going about their lives as normal. Thus, parts of this film could be regarded as an early experiment in reality as entertainment."
Today is an actor Henry Winkler's birthday. He is most-known for playing the “King of Cool” , “The Fonz” in "Happy Days".
According to Henry Winkler, Fonz never actually rode any motorcycles during the ten year Happy Days television run. Winkler, never rode a bike in real life either, he has dyslexia, which made it difficult for him to co-ordinate the clutch, throttle and brake. Instead, the bikes were mounted on a piece of wood with wheels to make it look like he was riding. Kinda sad.
I liked the fact that even though the story was taken place in the birth place of Harley-Davidson, Fonz's machine was a Triumph.
It is a 1990 low-budget horror movie about a motorcycle possessed by an evil spirit. Kind of a spoof of Stephen King's "Christine"
Set in a Birmingham, England suburb, the film is about a man named Noddy and his girlfriend Kim who operate a motorcycle courier business. One day Noddy bought a classic motorbike, a 750cc Norton Commando, and restored it. That motorbike, however, is possessed by the evil spirit of a man who was being summoned by an occultist who was killed by a motorbike gang. Whenever the spirit is overcome by a seeming blood lust, the bike would start up, ride on its own and kill people, particularly members of the Hells Angels.
I might watch this one...though seems quite stupid...

Well Halloween Motorcycle related movie... It is 1999 film "Murdercycle" After I saw the trailer, I have no intention of watching it. The effects are very "Power Ranger"like and acting looked like from a mediocre school production. Almost looks like a TV movie that Sci-Fi channel would pulled it out from its ass.
It is a 1989 comedy horror biker movie released by Troma. Some resources say it was released in 1991 and also known as "Chrome Heart". The film is about an all female motorcycle gang named the 'Cycle-Sluts' who cruise into the isolated town of Zariah looking for a good time. Here an evil scientist turned mortician has been killing local townspeople with the aid of his long suffering dwarf assistant ("If god wanted you to do normal things, he would have made you look like normal people") and turning them into zombies to use as labor at an abandoned mine, where too radioactive for human to work in. As you might figured, a dumb little kid let those zombies out and all the Hell break loose.
According to all the reviews I could find on-line, this movie would probably make you mad if you happen to spend chunk of money to obtain a DVD set ( which cost about 70 bucks new) unless you are a hardcore Troma movie fan/ collector and just don't give a shit about how you spend money. I will probably watch it with someone who has Netflix or something so that would not be a waste of money other than time...
This movie features Billy Bob Thornton and Hal Sparks before they became famous and it also features former MTV veejay Martha Quinn.

This is a little site called, I can’t find my phone.
You might have experienced the time you just could not find your phone and there are no one with another phone nearby to call your phone.
I often forget to carry my cell phone and go days without even holding it, and I leave my phone behind time to time ( I probably do the same with a hand gun) so if I can't find my phone, I just wait till turns up.

Riding your motorcycle may strength your bone density.
"A daily dose of whole body vibration may help reduce the usual bone density loss that occurs with age, Medical College of Georgia researchers report.
Researchers found vibration improved density around the hip joint with a shift toward higher density in the femur, the long bone of the leg, as well. Hip fractures are a major cause of disability and death among the elderly.
They also found a reduction in a biomarker that indicates bone breakdown and an increase in the surface area involved in bone formation in the vibrating group."
If you don't like riding your motorcycle, I guess you can just go for a jog or strap your dildos onto your body. I would suggest jogging more than dildos. Exercise is better for you regardless of your age. I think Harleys would vibrate too much. Bad for your blood circulation. Prolonged Harley riding can lead to motor neuropathy caused by contraction of vascular vessels of the limbs. Anything should be done with moderation...
